  • Tim Prins about the Easy Hook 26 cm

    "We were looking for a suitable hook for growing cucumbers. A cucumber plant grows on average 50 to 60 centimetres per week. This is almost twice as fast as a tomato plant that grows an average of 30 to 31 centimetres per week. We were therefore looking for a hook other than the 22 or 24 centimetre hooks we use in tomato cultivation''.

    Chrysanthemum cultivation is a very short crop. The trick is to have a biological army ready in time to combat thrips during those few weeks. With the addition of the Orius Plus predatory bait in combination with Power Food Plus, it is possible to keep thrips under control all year round. We speak to David van Tuijl of Linflowers.

  • Nursery Reijm about Menno Florades

    Gerbera is a vulnerable crop and fungi such as Verticillium and Fusarium are to be avoided at all costs. Good hygiene helps growers to keep these fungi at bay. The crop rotation is the perfect moment to kill fungal spores. Quite a challenge, since there is often still crop in the greenhouse and the pipes are still being used. Gerbera grower Johan Reijm shares his experience.

    Our spraying robot needed replacing after 18 years. There were two words on our wish list for a new spraying robot: fully automatic and sustainable.

  • Schenkeveld about Service Engine

    "Our previous system for service and maintenance tasks was no longer adequate. We could only create tasks and check them off," says Richard Schenkeveld, tomato grower from Schipluiden. "But with the increase in the number of machines and an increase in personnel, we were yearning for more insight and overview. We were tipped off about the Service Engine and that's where the ball started rolling".
